It's hard to tell what causes the problem. I don't have the Thesis 1.7, so I can't test it either.</p> <p>Often the javascript is the source of the problem. If necessary javascript is not loaded properly, flash video player does not work.</p> <p>Also if you load multiple flash video players in the same web page, the javascript functions may interfere with each other( for example, same function names) that they prevent the proper working.</p> <p>If you post a link to your wordpress page that the player doesn't work and I will take a look at it.</p> <p>Also, I found that there is a problem when you use player 4 and player 2 in a same page. </p> <p>Thanks </p> noellyons on "Hana FLV Player not working with Thesis 1.7" http://wpmarketing.org/forum/topic/hana-flv-player-not-working-with-thesis-17#post-142 Mon, 12 Apr 2010 14:38:40 +0000 noellyons 142@http://wpmarketing.org/forum/ <p>Chris at Thesis was quick to reply:</p> <p>Basically, a .flv plugin needs at least one file in order to work, and that's a swfobject.js file in the document &lt;head&gt; (I've heard reports that these plugins don't work if the JS is embedded just before the end of the HTML document, which is generally where you want to place JS).</p> <p>With the plugin active, check out the content of the document &lt;head&gt; while using the default WordPress theme. Then for comparison's sake, activate Thesis, and see if the plugin is serving the necessary files in the &lt;head&gt;. If it's NOT, then you know what the problem is.</p> <p>Quite frankly, I don't see any good reason (from a coding standpoint, at least) why the plugin would work with 1.6 and then not with 1.7, but then again, plugin developers do some interesting things to initialize their code. The presence of the wp_head action call in Thesis 1.7 is enough to allow the plugin to initialize itself in the preferred manner, so as far as I'm concerned, there's no reason why it shouldn't work.</p> <p>If you do discover that the Hana FLV plugin is not being initialized properly with Thesis 1.7, you can either dig through the plugin yourself and try to get it to initialize on the wp_head action hook, or else you can contact the plugin developer and suggest that he/she initialize the plugin with this standardized action hook (wp_head).</p> <p>Finally, some developers test for the presence of the wp_head action hook in the theme's header.php file before initializing their code, and this is both archaic and unnecessary. If the Hana FLV developer has gone this route, then it's time for he/she to remove that archaic check, as the wp_head action hook does not, as a rule, have to exist in that file in order to function. </p> noellyons on "Hana FLV Player not working with Thesis 1.7" http://wpmarketing.org/forum/topic/hana-flv-player-not-working-with-thesis-17#post-141 Sun, 11 Apr 2010 06:52:59 +0000 noellyons 141@http://wpmarketing.org/forum/ <p>Me too Jordan, that may explain why it was working and now no longer is!</p> <p>Noel Lyons. </p> jordan123 on "Hana FLV Player not working with Thesis 1.7" http://wpmarketing.org/forum/topic/hana-flv-player-not-working-with-thesis-17#post-139 Wed, 31 Mar 2010 18:45:30 +0000 jordan123 139@http://wpmarketing.org/forum/ <p>Hey there,</p> <p>I've been using Hana FLV Player with Thesis Theme 1.6 for a while now, and it works great =)</p> <p>BUT... I upgraded to Thesis 1.7 yesterday and now my videos are not loading. Just a blank white space where the video would normally appear.</p> <p>Any ideas? </p> <p>Thanks. </p>
